Mary Hickie

How are things with Mary Hickie the brighter self she does show
She is one i do remember who is blessed of the inner glow
Quite a charming woman and one free of conceit
In her a huge loss to Kerry a huge gain to Millstreet

Before she married the late Andrew Hickie Mary O' Donoghue was her birth name
In her ways kind and helpful most nurses are the same
On the Main Street of Millstreet Town she and Andrew had a hardware store
Among the nice people of the Town in the days of yore

One of Millstreet's finest in the days of old
Mary Hickie then quite beautiful to behold
Doubtless she is one who is aging well today
Since rare beauty as her's is slow to fade away

Though this is going back many Seasons in time
I remember Mary Hickie in her life's prime
But in Millstreet in Duhallow many changes since then
The babies at that time now aging women and men

The weeks go by quickly and time does tick on
And we only have memories of years now long gone
And memories of Mary Hickie today i retain
In her hardware shop on Main Street with her husband Andrew again.
